Greece:- Exhibition by Robert McCabe and Katerina Lymperopoulou of the beautiful Strofades. (Video)

As is well known, an exhibition by Robert McCabe and Katerina Lymperopoulou, entitled “The Last Monk of the Strofades”, is currently on display at the Benaki Museum, under the auspices of the Ecumenical Patriarch and the President of the Republic.


The series of photographs by Robert McCabe and the research of Katerina Lymperopoulou are framed by valuable exhibits, coming from the Museum of the famous monastery in the city of Zakynthos, as well as texts by distinguished scientists. The whole project is a tribute to the life of the last monk of the inaccessible Strofades, Papa Grigoris Kladis, who lived there for 38 years, essentially alone with God, the last lighthouse keeper and the boatman who brought supplies to the island.


Yesterday at noon, June 18, 2020, the Exhibition was visited by the Revs. Metropolitans Dodonis Mr. Chrysostomos, Zakynthos Mr. Dionysios and Axomis Mr. Daniel, as well as from the Brotherhood of the Monastery the Archimandrites Dionysios Liveris (and its current Professor) and Serafeim Konidis. The tour was conducted by Mr. George Magginis – Scientific Officer of the Museum and Ms. Lymperopoulou, taking all precautionary measures against Covid-19.

The exhibition will be open until September 13, 2020. For more information, click on the relevant page of the Benaki Museum, HERE!
